To celebrate the announcement of the Mason men’s basketball team’s selection to participate in the NCAA championship tournament, a pep rally will be held in the Johnson Center Atrium on the Fairfax Campus on Sunday, March 16, beginning at 5:30 p.m.

Along with President Alan Merten, head coach Jim Larranaga, and the Patriots team players, the Pep Band and Mason cheerleaders will be on hand to lead the celebration. A large viewing screen will be set up to view the NCAA Selection Show broadcast on CBS at 6 p.m.

The event will conclude after the team’s bracket information – date, time, location and opponent for their first game – is announced.

Some food court options will be open during the rally.

All are invited.
